Local and Global Climate Action on the Path to Paris

You're invited to a discussion on local and global climate action with Austin Blackmon, Boston's Chief of Environment, Energy, and Open Space, along with policy and corporate experts. Diplomats from nearly 200 countries meet in Paris this December to forge a global climate agreement. Much progress has been made toward reducing the emissions responsible for climate change. The path toward a low-carbon world will be difficult, but it also presents lucrative economic opportunities. How are leaders and thinkers across the globe – from Boston to Beijing – confronting the decarbonization challenge? Where do we stand less than three months from a climate summit that will define global energy for decades to come? In addition to Chief Blackmon, we'll hear perspectives from Kelly Levin, Senior Associate, World Resources Institute; Valerie Karplus, Assistant Professor of Global Economics and Management, MIT Sloan School of Management; and Mindy Lubber, President, Ceres.    

This event is jointly hosted by The Christian Science Monitor and World Resources Institute. It is free and open to the public. Doors open at 8:00 am for networking. Have a question you'd like to ask the guests? Email me, David Unger. I'll be moderating the event, and I am curious to hear what topics you'd like to see addressed.
